I'm thinking about putting a set I have on my Drifter¹ to go with the 700c wheelset. It's the only bike I have that will fit the bars. Since I got tge wrong size by accident.

Show me the money!!!
 
I never ran bullhorns on a cruiser, I think it would look a little odd to be honest. Those belong on tight geo / roadie frames only in my opinion. They're set up to get low and aero... which is the opposite of cruiser position. But that's just me. If you're looking for a bar that gets you more parallel to the road and less upright, my favorite is the Soma Condorina. Tons of style at a great price:

These have been powder coated, but shows them mounted:

Those do look good. I usually run flipped mtb risers.
 
If you have a threaded headset, you could run the bull horn bars with a very tall stem.
 
Check out the bikes from T.S.P Cycle farm in Italy, they do a fat tire pursuit stile bike with bullhorns, they look fantastic.

It has a 1⅛" headset. I have a set of bull bars I bought in the wrong size and otherwise have nothing to put them on, and I have a threadless conversion.
